Anti-Christian terrorism by Indian Hindu forces
According to a story appearing this morning in the WASHINGTON POST, Christians in India are undergoing severe trials. Churches have been burnt, forced and bribed conversions are being attempted by Hindu nationalists. That account suggests the persecution may have the Indian prime minister's blessings. However, another recent story suggests Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi ordered the campaign against Christians to be called off. Which is true, I do not currently know. Today's Washington Post article is later in time.
. . . His [Ajay Joseph, 39, a Christian lab technician] fears echo those of other religious minorities in majority-Hindu India, where some Christians and Muslims worry that incidents of religious tolerance will rise with the advent of a conservative government led by Narendra Modi, himself a fervent Hindu nationalist. In recent days, carolers have been beaten in the southern city of Hyderabad, and a Catholic church in New Delhi burned in a suspected case of arson. A conservative Hindu group said Wednesday that another mass “conversion” event would be held in February.Further, according to the story, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has a history of failing to stop violence against Christians and Muslims:
For several days this month, India’s secular Parliament repeatedly lapsed into chaos as members debated religious conversions and a plan that would have kept students in school on Christmas, normally a holiday, and designate Dec. 25 “Good Governance Day.” The country’s foreign minister also called for designating the sacred Hindu text the Bhagavad Gita the “national scripture.”“They are feeling nobody can do anything to them because of Narendra Modi,” said Yusuf Dass, a pastor at Central Methodist Church in Aligarh , , ,
India’s 64-year-old prime minister has a troubling history of religious intolerance, opponents say. In 2005, while he was chief minister in the state of Gujarat, the United States revoked Modi’s U.S. visa on the grounds that he had committed “severe violations of religious freedom” by not acting to stop Hindu-Muslim riots in Gujarat in 2002.
|NARENDA MODI, PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA|
These are all intensely disturbing developments. Further, I cannot help but wonder if they are developments that will be used to help justify a forced New World Religion -- a long time goal of New Age planners that I encapsulated in my 1983 book THE HIDDEN DANGERS OF THE RAINBOW.
These are trying times for the faithful to be sure. We must remember Jesus Christ's injunction: Be ye faithful unto death and I will give you a crown of life.
May God be with the Indian Christians and all who are facing persecution world wide for keeping the faith.

GLOBAL INFRASTRUCTURE INITIATIVE
Did you know there is now a new global governance type initiative? It is called the GLOBAL INFRASTRUCTURE INITIATVE? Javier Solana reported as a global sign of hope in his November 29th Project Syndicate article. The link supplied in his article is bad, but here is a good link to that Initiative. The project is projecting a required investment of $3 Trillion US dollars equivalent ANNUALLY. Query, how will that amount, should their initiative be "successful" be raised? Do you see any way out besides a global tax? I don't!
The leadership looks like a combination of governmental and big business allies. They undoubtedly had a lovely meeting in a posh Rio de Janeiro setting last May, 2014. The event was "by invitation only." GLOBAL INFRASTRUCTURE INITIATIVE
According to Javier Solana, the GLOBAL INFRASTRUCTURE INITIATIVE will "will create a Global Infrastructure Hub to serve as a knowledge-sharing platform for governments, the private sector, development banks, and international organizations. . . ."
McKinsey & Company, the consultant/organizer, of the event is a player in another "globalization" scheme: "the internet of things." In 2010 their Quarterly publication posited the advantages of accelerated interconnectedness:
McKinsey & Company get around. According to Huffington Post, even the Vatican has engaged them as a consultant.
Cognizant Reports has issued an on line available report on the "Internet of Things". You may obtain it from clicking here.
McKinsey & Company claims an alumni of upwards of 30,000 networked throughout the world. Not bad for a company started by accountants in Chicago, Illinois in 1926 -- at the time that the world was being prepared for a "messianic" figure named Jiddhu Krishnamurti -- a dream that did not pan out for the Theosophists and their fellow travelers. I do not yet know for certain if there were connections between the various occult networks and this firm, but I do know that many of their aims, proposed methods, and aspirations are the same. McKinsey & Company is BIG and as their website proudly proclaims:
According to a Wikipedia article on the business, it has a highly secretive culture that is "almost like a religion" among its members and adherents:When James O. McKinsey founded McKinsey in 1926, he could not have imagined the reach his small firm would eventually have. Eighty-five years later, the firm has grown into a global partnership serving two-thirds of the Fortune 1000.
A 1993 profile story in Fortune Magazine said McKinsey & Company was “the most well-known, most secretive, most high-priced, most prestigious, most consistently successful, most envied, most trusted, most disliked management consulting firm on earth.” According to BusinessWeek the firm is "ridiculed, reviled, or revered depending on one's perspective."McKinsey's culture has often been compared to religion, because of the influence, loyalty and zeal of its members. Fortune Magazine said partners talk to each other with "a sense of personal affection and admiration." An article in The News Observer said McKinsey's internal culture was "collegiate and ruthlessly competitive" and is sometimes described as arrogant. The Wall Street Journal said McKinsey is seen as “elite, loyal and secretive.” According to Reuters it has a "button-down culture" focused on “playing by the rules”. According to BusinessWeek, “some observers” say that McKinsey has started to lose touch with its founding principles and become less personal as its size has increased. The Guardian said at McKinsey “hours are long, expectations high and failure not acceptable.” Fortune and USA Today both noted that the majority of McKinsey's consultants are white men.
Well, I've just learned and plan to study more about this significant globalization initiative which might well ultimately affect both our pocketbooks and freedoms. It decidedly is "on the move" while we seem to focus on "news" more often bordering on soap operas. I'm keeping a wary eye on it. You should too.
